Super quick and easy recipe for a healthy little bite. Made with dates, almond butter, and coconut. Topped with a whole pecan with an optional chocolate drizzle
Line a baking sheet with waxed paper or silicone liner. Set aside.
In a bowl of a food processor, fitted with a metal blade, add pitted dates, almond butter, coconut, salt, and vanilla. Process until mixture will hold together.
Using a little less than 1 tablespoon of the mixture, form into a ball that holds together. Roll the ball into shredded coconut and put on the prepared baking sheet. Using your finger or thumb slightly flatten the ball. Spread a bit of almond butter on the bottom of the pecan and press into the flattened dough. Drizzle with melted chocolate, if desired.
Store in an airtight container in a refrigerator.
